I have a friend who has asked me to partner with him on a startup for several years now. It's something I'd love to do professionally; be my own boss and build something of my own. Have a decent client list from my years of working as does he. Now is the time to do it, but I'm not. I just can't make the math work out in my favor vs. being a salary man with benefits as an employee elsewhere. The healthcare nut makes it stupid to start any business where you'd need to hire actual employees. |
Re: Amused - I've traveled the globe quite extensively and agree that most "dangerous" parts of the world are probably safer than south Chicago. Then again I haven't traveled through a war zone as an American. You end up on the wrong side of the border when **** hits the fan things will not be easy for you. And going to a place like Mexico, assuming your skin is pale, you will always be a gringo Americano no matter how well you can speak the langugage. Commonwealth countries are probably the better bet for an expat American but not sure how that is improvement over the USA.
